Weibels tracking radars are widely used in test ranges across the
globe. For complex tests multiple objects are in close proximity during
e.g. missile stage separation or bomb release from fighters.
Conventional beamforming does not allow our radar to
separate multiple objects within the main beam. For targets at long ranges
this reduces the radars ability to see the dynamics at these critical
The goal is to implement a super resolution beamformer and evaluate the
performance under both simulated and realistic circumstances.
A large portion of the work is expected to be in
analyzing and finding solutions for differences between assumptions for the
chosen beamformer and the real-world. Similarly, it should be investigated
under which assumptions the beamformer will work and how it breaks down.
As this project is a “pre-study” the student can
influence the project scope and description.
Example of tasks
- Literature study of relevant beamformers [20%]
- Analysis of beamformer assumptions and validity for
- Performance Evaluation [40%]
- Present result benchmarked against the current solution

Birte Kronbak Andersen is not the project supervisor, she just
put the project idea in the Project Bank for Weibel. But a supervisor can
most likely be found at DTU Space.
